Last year, Cole Custer dominated the championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, despite not being among the Championship 4. This year, the No. 00 car won the pole for Saturday’s (Nov. 17) Ford EcoBoost 300. And if he wins the race? He’ll earn a NASCAR XFINITY Series title along with it.
Custer laid down a lap of 165.598 mph, less than a half-of-a-tenth quicker than Championship 4 rival Christopher Bell (165.345 mph). Each driver ran just one lap.
Ryan Reed will start 11th in his final drive for Roush Fenway Racing. Ryan Truex will start 15th in what he also expects to be his final race with Kaulig Racing. Spencer Gallagher will roll off 17th in his final scheduled NASCAR start.
The green flag for this race is scheduled to wave shortly after 3:30 p.m. ET. Custer is the defending race winner.
